Manhattan’s Forgotten Brewpubs

A Short History of Manhattan’s Forgotten First Wave of Brewpubs
“I’ve lived in lower Manhattan my entire adult life,” says Torch & Crown co-founder John Dantzler. “But there wasn’t anyone making the beer here that I wanted to drink. It’s a major discrepancy that we’re in the most densely populated part of the country and there isn’t a brewery built to serve the community.” That wasn’t always the case, however, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, Manhattan used to be a hotbed for brewing operations. Especially in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Beer thieves trash pub when keg heist goes awry

Beer thieves left red-faced, trash pub as keg heist goes wrong
Five beer thieves who attempted to steal kegs of beer left for collection outside the The Twa Tams in Perth, Scotland, trashed the pub after their heist went awry. The robbers attempted to make off with the kegs at around 8.20pm on 13 March, only to discover that they were empty and contained no beer, according to the Daily Record. Realising their error of judgement, four of the five fled the scene but a fifth, apparently incensed, threw a keg through the bar’s antique stained glass window, shattering it.

SF 2021 Strong Beer Week Paused for Pandemic

From: Shaun O’Sullivan
Hey Strong Beer good people. I hope you’re doing well and connecting safely with each other. This year we are pausing on Strong Beer Month with Magnolia Brewing for obvious reasons.
Strong Beer Month, every February, is largely a month-long retail event that relies strongly on people coming into our locations and enjoying the beers and themselves with our menu pairings, special events and frivolity. We are thinking about doing it later this year, but unsure about that at this point.
We’ll see you again and if you have a Strong Beer Month glass from previous years, head over to the 21st Amendment Brewery and Magnolia and pick-up some beer and pour it into that glass and think of us, as we’re thinking of you. Take care and be well.
